Making decisions about a bus!
I've got my eye on two busses:
2002 Thomas D style (flat front) Caterpillar, with seats removed, brand new tires, service, and underspray protectant. 143k miles
1991 thomas international dt360. (dog nose front). used as activity bus in forsyth county, and also a bus for a rafting company in the mountains. It looks like it has an oil leak, and there are some electrical issues. needs new tires fairly soon. seats and luggage rack intact. ODO broken
basically, i'm wondering if the extra 4000 ish is worth it for the new tires and the newer engine, and newer body. But I know the older engine dt360 is highly revered, is pretty reliable and more amenable to a WVO conversion. or I could run it on bio, but thats hard to find. Any mechanics have opinions on the C7? (I think its a C7)
